About

As you can probably tell by the content of this blog, I work as a software developer, and am based in the north-east of England. My current position is Senior Programmer for Epic Games in Sunderland, working on the Epic Games Launcher.

I have two bachelors degrees with honours. The first is in Chemistry from Durham University, and more recently, I obtained 1st class honours in Computing from the Open University.

I’m proud to be a professional member of BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT in the United Kingdom.

Key skills include:

  • the development of ASP.NET web applications using Web Forms on versions 3.5 and 4 of the framework.
  • Microsoft SQL Server – database design and implementation, including stored procedures, functions etc.

Things I’m keen to learn in the next 12 – 24 months:

  • Ruby on Rails – lots of people say it’s so much FUN!
  • MVC Core – I’ve used it, but want to get great at it.

The majority of blogging content will be technical in nature, but be warned… there will be topics of a non-technical nature thrown in from time to time too.

I’m also using Twitter for short updates. My Twitter handle is @yeurch.
